Engine
TR7RV is from a Triumph Tiger 750cc Twin with a 5 speed gearbox. XX would indicate Dec 77 build and a 78 model yr. I suspect the D is actually 0 and forms part of the serial no 03623.

Frame
T150 is a Triumph Trident triple (3 cylinder) built in March 73 and is a 73 model.

I do not think it would be easy to match up the engine to the frame as they are quite different machines although some of the cycle parts may be common or at least similar.
Suggest selling Trident frame and finding the correct frame for a Tiger. It would be the easier rebuild and Tiger frames are likely to be more available than Trident engines.

Hmm, just like mine. The motor is a 750 Triumph Tiger Scrambler
TR7RV - TR7- 750cc RV-Scrambler 5-Speed



As for the year, are you sure it is XXD and not XX or XD? Maybe it is XX03623?? I'm not sure they made the TR7RV in 69, but if they did the gear shifter would be on the RIGHT. If it is a 77, the gear shift on the "normal" LEFT side.

From the book:
X December 77
X Between Aug 1977 - July 1978

X December 69
D Aug 1969 - July 1970
03623 - 3,623 one made

The frame is: T150VCH03232
T150V is a 750 Trident frame (3 popper) V = 5 Speed
C March 73
H Between Aug 1972 - July 1973
03232 - 3,232nd one made

FYI,
I know it is not the same, but my TR7RV motor is in what I have been told is a "pre-68" bonnie frame. No numbers on the frame though so that came from an old triumph guy that looked it over. The Bonnie frames are much more common that a Tiger frame. You might want to look for one of those instead. Just a thought
